Let me start by saying the food was great! Everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed their meal. The server and busgirl were attentive. The food came out in good time. When we first walked in, the restaurant seemed a little dark. It did seem quite loud, like the acoustics were loud in there. Overall, we'd come back and recommend to friends.

You'd never know by the outside how lovely it is on the inside! Food was awesome. Best veal marsala I have ever had and the chocolate mousse was to die for. BYOB - they serve no alcohol but you can bring your own bottle.

I've eaten hear a half dozen times now. The quality of the food is outstanding, although they could improve their bread game. Service is great. It's loud in there but no more so that most other restaurants. Would definitely recommend this over almost all other Italian restaurants in the area.

Bistro Albertino is a hidden gem! We have reserved the restaurant on a Sunday for a large family gathering, which was flawless, and returned for a quiet dinner for two last week. There is no better steak to be had anywhere! The penne pasta in vodka crème sauce was also awesome! Wonderful, attentive service at a family-run, 5-star restaurant! I cannot say enough great things about this place!

This was our first visit to Bistro Albertino. Had reservations for dinner with friends to catch up and to celebrate 2 birthdays. It was a rainy Friday night and the place was packed. We were greeted immediately upon entering and our table was waiting for our party of 7. Our server John was very attentive and gave us great recommendations. The food was excellent from start to finish. Everyone in our party kept asking “how did you find this place?” The atmosphere was very friendly and comfortable. We were actually the last guest to leave the Bistro and never once were we rushed. One of the staff even said “be careful getting home” as we were leaving. So glad we found the Bistro. We will certainly be back again. Well worth the visit. Until next time...

Food was excellent, but the staff rushed us terribly.
I doubt that we will return.
The girl who refilled the water reached across in front of me while I was
eating - Very unprofessional!
Our friends also felt very rushed and their plates were taken before they were finished.
My husband asked for a second cup of coffee and never received it.

When we arrived we were a little skeptical at first due to where it was located. Not your typical Italian restaurant. When we arrived the waiter was very polite. He was very nice through the entire meal. The food was excellent as well as the atmosphere. We are going back next week.

We were there on a Friday evening. The restaurant was very full. Because of that, the service was a bit slow and not as attentive as on a weekday. I recommend making a reservation in advance for weekend dining. The food is still good though.

We have been here prior to Saturday evening and specifically chose this restaurant to take my MIL to dinner (she has some hearing issues so a noisy place was a deal breaker. Bistro Albertino’s did not disappoint! We had a special appetizer (wonderful) and the rest of the meal was just as good! The server was attentive and very sweet. I would strongly recommend this BYOB if you’re looking for a fantastic experience!

We truly enjoyed our dinner here! It is a smaller place so it wasn't the most quiet, but as a group of 6 we only added to the noise level. Food was all amazing and we can't wait to go back!
